Hi

I am upgrading the system in my car. Currently, what I already have is:

1. Pioneer headunit - 6025
2. Pioneer 12 cd changer
3. Pioneer 944 series amplifier
4. Pioneer 800w subwoofer.
5. Entirely custom made MDF rear platform to host speakers and subwoofer.

Now I want to know which speakers to opt for. I went to my auto guy and the range is mind-boggling as well as darned confusing.

I have narrowed the choice down to Pioneer 690R, 6975 and the 6990.

My music collection is diverse..at best. I like Guns n roses as much as I like ghazals. Techno is on a lot of the times, as is american pop from the 60's. Hip-hop and R&B is what I listen to first thing in the morning.

The kind of sound output I want is deep bass (like in nightclubs), with a good dose of treble (I am a sharpness fan).

Any suggestions are most welcome,

Thanks in advance,

GTO

I have a pair of 6990 5 way in my Vtec + 3 way alpine in the fron doors - they sound great but the bass is not that deep as I would have expected - it improved after a month (once the speakers loosended up). A possible reason could be that the amplifier is not that powerful. Since you have a subwoofer, this may not be an issue. However, the mid to high range is crystal clear! Since you have a sub woofer, go for circular speakers for better clarity. Hope this helps.

Ajmat,

Thanks a load bro for your help. Finally I went in for the 5 way Pioneer 6990 itself. You are right, though the bass on the 690R was more, the 6990 is more of an allrounder. Plus I got the sub, so didnt have to worry about the bass.

Thanks again

What about the mid range buddy?
Keep the level at 0 in your fader control. It'll (should) give you a balanced bass. Just a thought.
